HDRMAPS – aka artist Grzegorz Wronkowski – has made all 400-odd HDRI environments and HDRI skies on the website available to download for free at 2,048 x 1,024px resolution.

The images, which are provided in EXR format, are largely exteriors, although they include both rural and urban environments, under a wide range of lighting conditions.

As well as the free 2K versions, the high-resolution versions of images are available commercially, which usually takes the image width to around 20,000px, and may also include photographic backplates.

Both the free and commercial versions are licensed for use in commercial projects.

Updated 13 May 2021: The 402 2K samples are now available to download in a single zip archive.

In addition, Wronkowski has made over 100 free 10,000 x 5,000px HDRIs in the Freebies section of the website available under a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 licence.

If you like the assets, you can make a voluntary donation at checkout to help support the site.
